Einstien Manuscript Discovered

A student working on a master’s thesis has discovered the original manuscript of one of Albert Einstein’s papers. According to the news report:

The paper predicted that at temperatures near absolute zero — around 460 degrees below zero — particles in a gas can reach a state of such low energy that they clump together in one larger “mono-atom.”

The idea was developed in collaboration with Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose and the then-theoretical state of matter was dubbed a Bose-Einstein condensation.

In 1995, University of Colorado at Boulder scientists Eric Cornell and Carl Wiemann created such a condensation using a gas of the element rubidium and were awarded the Nobel prize for physics in 2001, together with Wolfgang Ketterle of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Cool!

  1. That is very cool. It must be great to find an original manuscript.

  2. I’ll bet the discoverer was thrilled – acording to the news report his thesis was certain to receive high marks.

  3. Incidentally, I linked to the same place twice. I have fixed the link to the news article.
